Global Activism: Saving Agave for Culture, Recreation, Education, and Development (S.A.C.R.E.D.).
On today’s Global Activism segment, Lou Bank joins Worldview once again to catch us up to date with his non-profit, Saving Agave for Culture, Recreation, Education, and Development (S.A.C.R.E.D.). The mission of S.A.C.R.E.D. is to use traditional and artisanal agave spirits to improve the quality of life of children in rural Mexico. Funds from S.A.C.R.E.D. help build libraries, the replanting of agave, and the maintenance of a water reserve in Oaxaca, Mexico. This is all while ensuring that the people most involved in creating traditional agricultural products, like agave spirits, reap the rewards of their work.
